Where do our grounds go?

By Tim Coonan, Founder of Big Shoulders Coffee

The answer to that is Chicago Lights Urban Farm!  They are our neighbors right down the street on Chicago Avenue.  They use our spent grounds for compost in their garden.  They operate a farmers market and offer CSA shares too.  Direct your questions to Ben Jaffe at:
